Re: Monster XRL Cables, worth it?
I use Monster mic cables and I love them. To me, they are worth the money. But you should try to fix your own first as it's not that hard.
There are many good comments here. In addition, I would also collect opinions about cables from people who merely buy cables and do not make their own. For DIY cable makers, nothing except their own hand-crafted cables will ever be good enough and since they are not in the business of making, distributing and selling cables, they cannot sell you these great cables they make. So you either get the skills and equipment to make your own, or your research OEM cables out there.
